Notes/Commercial Description:
The Western Slope of Colorado, just a short trip over the Rocky Mountains, is the perfect place to find new ingredients for an excursion in brewing. Jaunt is a process, or journey, marrying a delicate pale ale with Colorado grown Riesling grapes and aged on oak, just for pleasure. The final blend boasts a creamy malt body, a bright and crisp fruity finish, and just a dash of vanilla from the oak. 7.6%

Truncated notes from a bomber below; I'll plan on revisiting this for a proper review:

Appearance: Has a creamy fluffy off-white head of nice thickness and consistency, with excellent retention - about 9 minutes

Body is murky. Yellow-copper in colour.

No yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

AROMA: Lemongrass, white grapeskin, straw/hay, and juicy fruity hop notes.

TASTE: Pale malts, unexpected acidity, clean barley, straw/hay, some farmhouse character, clove, biscuity Belgian-style yeast, floral hop character. Riesling? A bit. Oak? Not finding any.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, light-bodied, slightly overcarbonated, refreshing, and aptly thick. Suits the taste well.

OVERALL: A refreshing ale from Odell with a kiss of white wine influence. Another winner from perhaps the best brewery in Colorado. I look forward to revisiting this for a proper in-depth review; it boasts some interesting subtleties and Belgian influence. Very drinkable stuff. This hides its ABV quite well.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a semi-hazed gold/pear color with a thumb of ivory colored head. Stays effervescent, great lacing & good head retention

S: White wine & sweet malt, faint pineapple & a little grapefruit rind once warm

T: Pineapple, pears, white grape, persimmons & ever so faint grapefruit up front. A little grainy sweetness as this warms, Honeycrisp apples as this warms, white grape, dryness (Riesling all over the place) & a little bit of lemon too. Finishes super crisp, pineapple notes, a little dryness & some pink grapefruit

MF: Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, skews fruity

Highly drinkable, not always a fan of this wine barrel aged beers, but this one works for me. Didn't floor me, well worth a go if the pricepoint doesn't scare you
